Rock giants U2 are celebrating the success of their Broadway record-breaking hit Spider-Man Turn Off The Dark after it shattered Broadway box office and attendance records during the last week of 2011.
Bono and The Edge wrote the music and lyrics for the show, which was once branded the biggest flop on Broadway but took in $2,941,790 (€2.25m) over nine performances last week.
"For all the problems, there was magic on the stage," said Bono. "Things did get chaotic and messy after our producer Tony Adams died.
"But this week's news has us all giddy again and we are raising our glasses to Tony, to our indefatigable cast, crew, creative- and production team."
